I noticed that when I checked with libxslt. According to the specs,
element-available() should return false() for all top-level elements.
Saxon 6.5.5 does this as does libxslt (Webkit), but for some reason
libxslt makes an exeption for xsl:decimal-format and xsl:param. (see
also Notes [1] and [3] on my output page).
